Contactless Cards

Tap to Pay for a Fast, Easy and Secure Checkout

If your Mission Fed Mastercard® Credit or Debit Card has the contactless symbol on it, purchases just got faster and easier. Now there’s no need to swipe or insert your card at the register and fewer surfaces to touch at places accepting contactless payments. Simply tap your card and go!

Contactless cards use the same security as chip cards by generating a transaction-specific, one-time-use code to protect your payment information.

Tap-to-Pay Locations

Use your Mission Fed contactless Credit or Debit Card anywhere you see the contactless symbol. From grocery stores and gas stations to your favorite retailers, coffee shops and more, you can find the contactless symbol at millions of locations worldwide. Use this contact locator to discover locations near you.

Tap & Go®in 3 Simple Steps:

  • Look for the contactless indicator anywhere you shop.
  • Tap your card on or hold it right above the contactless indicator at the checkout terminal when it’s time to pay.
  • Go on your way once your payment is confirmed, usually in seconds.
